Since the 1970s, many Australian architects have been considering how non-Indigenous designers can work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve better built environments. A consistent message from this work has been the importance of employing inclusive, respectful, cross-cultural processes that engage all parties respectfully, understand the history of the people and place and, share knowledge and expertise in the process. Shaneen has worked collaboratively with Indigenous people on architectural projects to pursue new design methodologies that reflect these principles since 1995. This presentation provides an introduction to ‘intercultural design practice’ and gives examples of different tools and methods through project case studies.

Learning outcomes for this webinar include:

  • Understanding the context of working on architecture projects with Indigenous people in regional and remote locations
  • Respectful and inclusive engagement, what might that look like?
  • Tips and tools that will assist you with this work
  • Self-awareness in relation to architecture, culture, design and ways of working
